Where is this happening? Glasgow and Dundee

SCDC is offering a series of free workshops for community engagement practitioners, from all sectors, the opportunity to come together to learn and share experience about the application of the National Standards for Community Engagement in different contexts. The workshops will focus on community engagement practice around participatory budgeting, engaging with equalities groups, community councils, community development trusts, implementing participation requests (Community Empowerment Act), locality planning and coproduction.

The first workshops in this series of workshops will discuss:

Engaging with Equalities Groups. These are the people or communities who face discrimination or social exclusion due to personal characteristics, including: age, disability, gender, race or ethnicity, language, faith, religion or belief, sexual orientation, gender identity. The workshop will discuss and look at practical steps that engagement practitioners can take to ensure that equalities groups are part of the discussions, participation and decision making in our communities. The workshop will be held in The Studio, 67 Hope Street, Glasgow G2 6AE on Tuesday 20 June 2017 from 10am to 12.30 - Tea and coffee will be provided from 9.30am. To book your place click here.

Participatory Budgeting and the Standards for Community Engagement. Participatory Budgeting (PB) is an innovative democratic process which enables residents to have direct decision making powers over the allocation of resources. The goal of the Government is for PB to move beyond its predominant model of allocating small pots of money to voluntary and community groups, towards repeatedly distributing significant mainstream public budgets, in line with international practice. This has important implications for community engagement practice and the tools and frameworks we use to scale up the way we work with communities. The workshop will be held in Dundee Contemporary Arts, 152 Nethergate, Dundee DD1 4DY on Tuesday 27 June 2017 from 10am to 12.30 - Tea and coffee will be provided from 9.30am.
